Element Gaming is something of a newcomer to the component market, but having taken a look at a range of Element Gaming products over the last few months, I’m certain they’re off to a great start. Their Hyperion and Atomic chassis’, as well as their Berrilyum mechanical keyboard, all won awards from us here at eTeknix and seem to have been well received by the PC community in general. Today, we kick things off with a look at one of the latest Element Gaming headsets, the Neon 300, but can it meet the same standards as the previous products we’ve tested?
Now, I’m not expecting world conquering performance today, as this is a very affordable headset, so it’s not out to compete with the big players in this sector, but there’s still a huge market for those on a tighter budget and I’m eager to see how competitive Element Gaming can be while maintaining a budget-friendly price tag.

At just £24.99 this headset is certainly kind to the wallet, but it doesn’t skimp on features one bit. There’s an in-line controller, 50mm drivers, virtual 7.1 surround sound and LED lighting; not bad at all!
